The vast multi-generational epic that began with The Tea Rose and continued with The Winter Rose now reaches its dramatic conclusion in The Wild Rose.
London, 1914. World War I is looming on the horizon, women are fighting for the right to vote, and global explorers are pushing the limits of endurance at the Poles and in the deserts. Into this volatile time, Jennifer Donnelly places her vivid and memorable characters:


Willa Alden, a passionate mountain climber who lost her leg while climbing Kilimanjaro with Seamus Finnegan, and who will never forgive him for saving her life.


Seamus Finnegan, a polar explorer who tries to forget Willa as he marries a beautiful young woman back home in England.


Max von Brandt, a handsome sophisticate who courts high society women, but who has a secret agenda as a German spy;


and many others.
